This recipe for JUST LIKE REESES CANDY, by , is from The Denney Family Cookbook , one of the cookbooks created at FamilyCookbookProject.com. We help families or individuals create heirloom cookbook treasures.

Added: Wednesday, June 24, 2009


• 2 cups peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
• 1/2 cup brown sugar
• 1/2 cup melted butter
• 1 teaspoon vanilla
• 2 1/2 cup powdered sugar
• 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
• 2 tablespoons

1.Mix first 4 ingredients together.

2.Add powdered sugar and mix well (I use my fingers to mix).

3.Press into 9X13 inch pan.

4.Melt chocolate chips and butter together.

5.Spread over first mixture and chill for about.
one hour then cut into squares.

This is so easy to make and tastes just like a Reese’s peanut butter cup candy--these disappear pretty fast--but if you have any left--place in container and put in freezer---then if you have a chocolate attack---just reach in freezer for a quick fix.

Do not know how long these will freeze for--as mine disappeared quickly. Hope you enjoy this as much as we do!!!!!
